Seth Kaye

Songwriter, Producer

Seth Kaye on SoundBetter

I'm a singer-songwriter based in the greater Orlando area. I run my own studio space and specialize in vocal production and ambient dreampop sounds. I can help you finish your lyrics and design the soundscape for your next song. I specialize in taking a song from voice memo demo quality to a full, unique arrangement, ready for distribution.

I have an extensive background in songwriting and arranging, both in sacred and secular music. I have produced for solo artists such as Logan Daniel Garza and closure, as well as worship bands such as LUMINS, Austin Stone Worship, Garden City and SOCO Worship. I also have produced my own projects: EVERS and MASSIVESAD. I am currently recording and producing projects for SOCO Worship, Emma Dahlin and others.

  22. A: I've been writing songs since I was a little kid swinging and singing on the swing set in my back yard, and I've been playing music (heavy on the keys) since I was 15. I started producing music in college, and have been working consistently on bands, solo projects and church records for the past 10 years.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: My style is ethereally beautiful cinematic soundscapes with a hint of melancholic dream pop and emotional moments of visceral aggression. I'm big into poetic, deep-cut lyricism and vocal harmonies and modulation.

  26. A: I would love to work with Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Lennon Stella, Amber Bain (The Japanese House), Jillian Banks (Banks), Kimbra Johnson (Kimbra), Aaron Dessner (Big Red Machine), etc. Those are some of the artists and songwriters who have inspired me the most over the years.

  27. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: My strongest skill is coming up with melodic hooks and harmonies. I can't help it. They just flow. I don't even have to try. The hardest part of my work is capturing everything I hear. It's like trying to catch water from a fire hose in a bucket.

  31. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  32. A: I bring a unique sound and perspective to songs that tends to draw unsurfaced emotions out of people. I know how to connect the heart with the music and how to maintain that connection so that listeners are never left unsatisfied emotionally. I also think my sound is a very unique and experimental ambience that can fit into a large variety of different genres.

  33. Q: What's your typical work process?

  34. A: I typically will hear or listen to something that inspires me, then I sit down with music or lyrics and let my body find its way through the initial discovery of the song. I like to catch a wave of inspiration and try to explore every idea. I also am a huge believer in discipline and sitting down to do the work. It's been said that you have to let inspiration find you working, and I definitely agree.

  35. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  36. A: I have an incredibly beautiful live room that is acoustically treated in all the right ways. It's so quiet you might think you've died and gone to heaven when you first walk in and shut the door. I've also got an assortment of mics, midi controllers, synthesizers, vocal fx pedals and guitars that I love to create with. I run all of my projects in Ableton Live 10 Suite.

  37. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  38. A: I have always been massively inspired by soundtracks and film scores, so I have a very cinematic feel and approach when creating music. I want the song to tell a story that pulls listeners in and engages their senses all the way through. I'm all about creating moments and spaces for listeners to step into and engage with while their experiencing your song.

  39. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  40. A: Most often I work with clients who have written a song, or part of a song, and need to begin producing their art but don't know where to start. I'm especially good at hearing musical ideas at the beginning of a song's creation. I know just where to start and how to build momentum as you craft the song you're working on.
